    Hi all,

     

    I recently inquired on here, on our arrival where is the best place to purchase mobile phones on contract. I have had a reply saying that it won't be possible as we have no credit history. But my question is when I opened my oz bank account in the UK 18 months ago our bank manager actually said by the time we moved our credit history would be very good as I was transfering money to the account on a monthly basis?. Any thoughts on this?, thanks in advance.

    Hi,

     

    Like you we opened out bank account proud to arriving and transferred money regularly! When we arrived I had no problem getting a mobile contract as long I could prove I had regular employment!

    My friend got an iPhone. Telstra just wanted $600 on the account and everything was okay.

     

    Telstra seem really expensive though compared with Optus. I'm on a prepaid 4G one. Good value.

    It does work against you here initially - not lived here - no credit history!!

     

    Same as the 100 point ID system,passport and a local driving license will make it.
